Sharing is caring!

It is a battery’s nature to decay in time, but sometimes due to irresponsible usage, people find themselves with relatively new phones that can’t handle as much time as it’s supposed to between charges. There are numerous causes that lead up to this problem, but in this article we’re going to look at a few simple things that can be done in order to raise the lifespan of the battery, from nothing to at least decent.

Turn off all consumers

You can check the battery section of your mobile device to see exactly which and services are using, and which are putting the biggest stain on your phone’s battery. It is important that all consumers which aren’t needed are turned off for obvious reasons. This also includes your phone’s functions such as Bluetooth or WiFi, which are big battery drainers. If you are not using either one, make sure they are turned off, or else you’ll just be wasting energy.

Google Now

This feature consumes a lot of energy for simply standing in an idle state and waiting to be used. If your phone is dealing with battery issues, you should turn off Google Now as it can prove to be a big energy saver.

Screen and wake-up features

The newer generation devices come with a lot of features that are meant to provide accessibility, but end up being great battery drainers than do more harm than good, for what they offer. Check and disable functions like day dreaming and accidental wake up, not to mention ambient display, which keeps your proximity sensors engaged at all time, to detect how close you are to your phone. Also the screen will light up every time you get a new notification, and if you’re the kind of person that gets a lot of notifications, your battery will suffer tremendously.

No vibrations

The vibrate mode is available on pretty much every smartphone out there, but what most do not know is that the vibrate mode actually consumes a lot of battery power. If you can help it, make sure you are only using the volume, with no vibration.

Stay updated

If you do not update your device, your risk missing out on some key battery improvement feature the developer might have put out, so it’s best if you always update your device when the update notification appears.
